HPLip/CUPS filter failed on 19.03

Hello list,
a curious problem, I’ve updated my desktops from 18.09 to 19.03
without config changes for printing, relevant excerpts:

hardware.sane = {
  enable = true;
  extraBackends = with pkgs; [ hplipWithPlugin ];

environment.systemPackages = with pkgs; [ hplipWithPlugin ];

nixpkgs.config.packageOverrides = pkgs: {
  hplip = pkgs.hplip.override {
    withPlugin = true;

services.printing = {
  enable = true;
  drivers = [ pkgs.hplipWithPlugin ];

And my old HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf ceased to work with
“filter failed” error. Complete CUPS log here http://ix.io/1H3K

Trying to remove ~/.hplip and setup the printer again
hp-setup -i $printerIP
ask to install hp plugin (and fail) but in theory should be already

Any insight?

This might be that issue (that I’m also having): hpcups crash in libImageProcessor · Issue #58949 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub

you are right, found in log. I do not have, nor I want a GitHub
account so I can’t add myself to the issue, sorry. Howether thanks
for pointing out, I downgrade simply changing to
hplipWithPlugin_3_16_11 and anything work again.

Another time, proprietary software == problems and community
provides workarounds…
